Just a note to alert everyone to the Public Musicology conference that will be held today and tomorrow at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. One of the goals of conference organizers Ryan Bañagale and Josh Duchan is to reach beyond the cloud of musicological specialists to the general public, and with this in mind they have arranged various ways of interaction.

My own paper (come on; like I wasn’t going to be involved at a Billy Joel conference!?) is called “Billy Joel, Piano Culture, and Rock’s Road Not Taken,” and I’ll give it on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM. Unless plans suddenly materialize for a volume of essays (doubtful, I’d say), my plan is to post the paper, enriched with links, here on our very own Dial M.
Here is the notice, with repaired links—SORRY ABOUT THAT!:
